Guest: Journailst and author Mike Volpe joins us to discuss his new book, Bullied to Death: Chris Mackney's Kafkaesque Divorce
Available from Amazon
On December 29, 2013, Chris Mackney sat alone in his parked car, put a shot gun underneath his chin and blew his head off. It was the tragic end to a near six year custody battle which saw him penniless, homeless, jobless, with no access to his children, and taunted and threatened with jail: all at the behest of his ex-wife and her father. This all started when Mackney discovered that his father-in-law was a murderer and the man who got away with one murder engineered a suicide to hide it. "Murder by suicide" Mackney called it. The legal bullying didn't stop with his suicide. His ex-wife followed him into the grave and attempted to copyright his suicide note. When that blew up, Mackney became a martyr and symbol for all that's wrong with family courts. His suicide note has been read by millions, but now the whole unbelievable story is told.
What is bullying and why do bullies bully?
Aggressive or dominating behavior is often displayed by teenagers and can continue over a lifetime in abusive relationships. Such a primitive psychological defense mechanism finds roots in an attempt to control disturbing feelings.
Many times a bully is seeking power, especially if they did not receive a sense of security or empowerment at home. When parents or caregivers attempt control children by creating fear or shame, perhaps the smaller, more scared children or those with deeper emotional insecurities become victims, while others will hide behind their discomforts by showing abusing behaviors and exploiting other kids’ insecurities.
Join Dr. Sadigh and his special guest Sandra Dupont, LMFT to find out how the bully and the bullied respond in relationship with self and others. Learn what needs must be met in order to prevent bullying. Sandra specializes in supporting teens and their parents in understanding and addressing the issues teens face today.

School Bullying StatisticsSchool bullying statistics in the United Stats show that about one in four kids in the U.S. are bullied on a regular basis. Between cyber bullying and bullying at school, the school bullying statistics illustrate a huge problem with bullying and the American school system.In a recent SAFE survey, teens in grades sixth through 10th grade are the most likely to be involved in activities related to bullying. About thirty percent of students in the United States are involved in bullying on a regular basis either as a victim, bully or both. These school bullying statistics show what a problem bullying of all kinds in the United States has become. The recent school bullying statistics show that cyber bullying is becoming increasingly prevalent on school property as well as involving students even when they are not at school. Because of this growing number of kids affected by bullying, more and more schools throughout the country are cracking down on the measures taken to stop bullying.
This week two University of Missouri administrators were forced out of their position due to a supposed hostile racial climate on campus. A story of a swatika drawn with feces ni a dorm was spread through campus as well as supposed sighting of the Ku Klux Klan. I student went on a hunger strike until the head-naaster was replaced or resigned. All of this was to highlight the racial injustice and White privledge problem in the country. I even took quite a FB lashing from some because of my postion when a majority of the UM football team decided they would not participate in football activities until the headmaster was replaced or resigned.
As the week worn on stories about how some of these stories were exaggerated and some downrigh lies started to come out. When video of student journalist being bullied and physically turned away from the #concernstudent1950 tents on campus were released even more questions were asked about what was going on here. I have my theory but you are going to have to listen to the show to find out what it is..
